Habanero Red Onion Salsa
It’s pepper harvest season at my house right now! I grow a large variety of peppers in my backyard garden – in large amounts – and now is the peak of harvest season for those peppers right now. I’m always coming up with new and delicious ways to use up those peppers but today, I’m going to share with you one of my long time favorite habanero recipes… My Habanero Red Onion Salsa and it’s so simple!
This recipe is a staple at many Mexican restaurants around the country. It’s definitely a condiment stable for Mexican night at our house!
Most salsas call for tomatoes but not this salsa – that’s what’s makes it unique. It’s called a salsa but it’s kind of like a habanero onion relish. It’s good on any kind of Mexican food that you can think of but it’s also one of my favorite toppings to put on top of a burger or hot dog. It’s good on a whole smorgasbord of different things. Add it to anything that you want to kick up a little bit. Sandwiches of any kind, beans, stirred into soup – heck I think it’s even good on top of macaroni and cheese!
It’s really good stuff y’all – check out how easy it is too!
